British Journalists march for Palestine....

They dishonor the profession by attending such a partisan rally....
Two years ago I wrote in my diary about my anguish and hurt over the behavior of my fellow journalists at an NUJ (National Union of Journalists) magazine branch meeting. You may ask, “What is a good conservative lass doing hanging out with a trade union crowd?” Okay, I admit: I am a union member in Britain because I do think we workers need protection. In fact, that is why I think the NUJ exists, but every time I go to a meeting the obsession is not jobs or wages but — you guessed it — evil Israel!

I have not been feeling well from time to time and had to miss my branch meeting — known as a “chapel” (apologies to all you Christian Zionists out there) — on May 11 but received this email the following morning regarding events in Bloomsbury and then in Trafalgar Square on Saturday, May 16:
Last night’s monthly meeting of the NUJ London Magazine Branch passed motions committing the branch to send delegations on two demonstrations. …

Branch members will be meeting beside the branch banner outside the University of London Union in Malet Street, WC1, at 11:30 a.m. to join the first:

Remember Gaza — End the siege now!; Free Palestine — end Israeli occupation. …

End the arms trade! … The demonstration is called by: Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Stop the War Coalition, British Muslim Initiative, Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, and Palestinian Forum in Britain.

'Journalists'? I don't think so.
